On September 14, 1921 — 1921 – Washington’s Walter Johnson gives up three hits but still faces just 27 batters in edging the Browns 1 – 0. Following two singles in the 4th, George Sisler’s line drive is turned into a triple play. Jack Tobin singles in the 7th, but Johnson picks him off. Tobin will set an American League record this year with 179 singles, a mark that Sam Rice will top in 1925.
